Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a visitor accesses a page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites that show the same content all of the time, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module can be quite efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications whatever the shared hosting plan that you pick when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your websites since it will start caching their program code. If you need to run sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you will be able to use it regardless of the package you select. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to use several releases of PHP at once, you will be able to customize the software environment for every single site that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this particular website will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and use different web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
